To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March 2019, we asked Japan House London’s book curator, Haba Yoshitaka, to recommend five books written by Japanese women. You can find the books recommended by Haba in The Shop at Japan House London.
Haba Yoshitaka is a book connoisseur and representative of BACH. Through the production of library displays, reading areas and installations on shop floors, Haba aims to connect books with different industries, creating opportunities for people to have greater access to unknown books. His love of books spans beyond curation to include editing and writing. Visit the Japan House Library to see the books Haba chose for Japan House London and his regularly changing book displays.
